Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Pens two-year deal

Wideman put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension with Montreal on Monday. Wideman is coming off a career year for the Habs this season in which he set new personal bests in assists (23), points (27) and power-play points (12). It's the first multi-year deal the defenseman has signed since February of 2016, having played the last three seasons on one-year contracts. Even with his increased offensive output, Wideman shouldn't be expected to offer more than mid-range fantasy value heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Point-per-game pace in last 12

Wideman had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils. His goal a 1:11 started a third-period frenzy that pushed starter Andrew Hammond out of the net. Wideman has been particularly prolific in his last 12 games, putting up 12 points (two goals, 10 helpers). Many players have responded well to the teachings of new coach Marty St. Louis and that includes Wideman, who seems to be thriving.

Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Labeled healthy scratch

Wideman will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Lightning. There is no injury at play with Wideman's expected absence Saturday. He's simply sitting to make room for the return of Ryan Poehling (upper body). The team's decision to scratch Wideman is a bit of an odd one considering he has nine points in his last 10 games.

Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Widens scoring streak

Wideman scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers. Wideman opened the scoring just 2:32 in, extending his point streak to four games. The veteran defenseman's second-period helper was his ninth point in the last nine games, as Wideman has been a surprisingly consistent source of offense recently. He's hanging around on waivers in the vast majority of leagues, so fantasy managers in need of scoring from the blue line should consider giving Wideman a look after this latest strong showing.
